Megyn Kelly, a prominent Fox News anchor, said recently that Native Americans are illegal immigrants, essentially
This, once again, unfortunately, shows the ignorance of such so-called journalists and TV professionals but also the ignorance of those that watch
such TV channels.
One can but assume that some US politicians are about of the same caliber when one considers that Sarah Palin did not know that Africa was a continent
and has also a great lack of knowledge in other fields. They, more than likely, get much of their information from the same source, namely Murdoch’s
Many ordinary Americans also suffer from the same or similar lack of knowledge as could be seen when the US embarked on its illegal war in
Afghanistan. It was only good that the military leaders knew where the country was and could, more or less, read a map otherwise it might be Germany
which would be under constant drone attacks, for that is where many placed Afghanistan.
Just sad isn't it? But this is the "FOX Nation" mentality, if your heritage isn't from Europe, you are here illegally. Apparently even the
indigenous peoples of North America aren't even legal in this country as far as FOX News is concerned.
Did this get said on TV and is it a quote? ...Or is this another out-of-context game?
Is she saying that they are citizens of their own nation I.E. within the confines of their reservations and not US citizens or is this just another TV
idiot hanging on by her fingernails so that she doesn't fall out of her own ass?
By the way. I suspect Fox is only going all out on the moron front so that it can try to catch up with the parade of idiocy that is
ABCNBCCBSPBSCNNBBCASOB and all of the rest of the US propaganda apparatchik.
As far as Native Americans are concerned, I imagine most of them have more sense than to listen to the crap that our country calls "news".
The only video I could find was this one, about "diversity training" where the trainer said "The pilgrims were illegal immigrants" and is making
people at the USDA repeat this phrase during the "training" session.
Megyn Kelly, during that entire video did not say the words this article from BIN and
Greenview imply she said.
I've watched it once over, and the only discussion is about a sensitivity training seminar, where the instructor was saying "Pilgrims, were illegal
immigrants. They didn't give the native's their passports...etc"
This thread should be thrown into the HOAX BIN.
It's ironic the original article is lambasting the media, and figures like Sarah Palin for being ignorant, yet they see a meme for this, and they
report on it. Internet MEMEs are not sources of information.

Let's take a look at the history like the history of this nation didn't exist for much of the time Natives were in America then came the Euros with
the manifest destiny that conquered the natives created a country then waited few hundred years to make them citizens just like they conquered
southern immigrants for decades, and then someone finaly decides make them a part of the conquering 'heroes'..
Welcome to America
Home of the slave, and the land where your free to be spied on.
Enjoy your stay in no man's land.

I don't know if what she supposedly said is accurate, what context it was said in, or if only part of what she said was used for shock content.
I don't really trust "quoted" material anymore. If she did say something alluding to Native Americans being essentially "illegal immigrants" I'd
like her to say that to my step-father's face. He was born on the reservation, fought in WW2 and Korea, and is a true American Patriot.
If she said it, I'd like to slap her. If she didn't say it and her statement was purposefully taken out of context I'd like to slap the divisive
jerk that did the article.
Unfortunately, they have disabled comments. They bash ignorant media in their little rant, but their only source of Megyn Kelly saying this is a
internet meme created by something like memegenerator.
The actual root of the claim is in a segment where Megyn was covering sensitivity training, and talking about whether or not money should be spent on
something like that. At the training session, the speaker states that "Pilgrims were illegal immigrants."
Conclusion: Megyn Kelly did not say these words and this has no supportive backing besides an internet meme that anyone could create. The source video
(which is nowhere near the accusation) is posted by me a few posts up.
Well, I suppose the Blond Bimbo Brigade at Fox News has done it again. They proven that when you thought you'd seen the limits of stupidity, oh silly
mortal, you ain't seen nothing yet. They'll even have more after a break, I'm sure.
I'm afraid one just doesn't cover this level of dumb. Nope... It's just not up to the task at hand. This takes a chorus.
The music is even nice and relaxing while considering just how dumb some people can actually be and still hold a career.
